The Kingdom within you. The kingdom of God is not going to appear immediately, and yet repeatedly, Jesus says, “The kingdom is at hand. Repent, for the kingdom of God is at hand.” In fact, he is more explicit than that in Luke “If it is by the finger of God that I cast out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.”.
